50th anniversary of the premier of “Stay Away from Trinity When He Comes to Eldorado”


Today marks the 50th anniversary of the premier of “Scansati... a Trinità arriva Eldorado” (Stay Away from Trinity When He Comes to Eldorado) directed by Aristide Massaccesi using the alias Dick Spitfire and starring Craig Hill, Stan Cooper and Gordon Mitchell. The story revolves around Jonathan Duke (Stan Cooper) who makes a living by cheating at cards and selling the fake elixir of life. He’s helped in this enterprise by Sebastian Carter (Gordon Mitchell) as his barker. Unmasked by a stubborn old man, the two return to Trinity. Here Eldorado (Craig Hill) has accumulated wealth through tyranny and calling himself a god. He fulfills his delusions in the midst of a bevy of servants. To rob this dangerous madman Duke asks for help from Ringo Jones (Custer Gail) and sides with Juanita (Daniela Giordana), a victim of the despot. With a ploy (appearing as a magician who is assisted by Juanita) Jonathan manages to steal a large sum from Eldorado. Then with Eldorado neutralized Ringo, Carter, Juanita and himself he opens a gambling hall where he can happily cheat.
